Israeli settlers storm Al-Aqsa mosque
Once again, Israeli settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces amid calls for Palestinians to station themselves at the holy site.
Israeli settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday morning under the strict protection of Israeli occupation forces, amid calls from the people of Al-Quds to perform seclusion in the Mosque during the first ten days of Thul-Hijjah.
Dozens of Israeli settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque through the Morocco Gate earlier today and performed Talmudic rituals in its courtyards, sources reported.

The settlers' continuous incursions are part of "Tel Aviv's" attempts to divide Al-Aqsa Mosque and obliterate its identity.
During a storming, the IOF expel Palestinians from the eastern part of Al-Aqsa in order to facilitate the incursion. The storming takes place over two phases; the first one takes place during the morning and the second during the noon prayers with facilitation by the Israeli occupation.
Palestinian netizens have called on the people of Al-Quds and Palestinians all over occupied Palestine to station themselves at the Mosque and perform seclusion there during the month of Thul-Hijjah to deter Israeli aggression and desecration of the holy site.
Hamas has repeatedly underlined the importance of Palestinians stationing themselves at the Mosque in order to protect it and foil the Israeli occupation's plans to desecrate and attack it. The movement has called on the Palestinian people all over occupied Palestine to defend Al-Quds and support those stationed there.
Hamas underlined that the Israeli occupation's attempts at driving the Palestinian people away from Al-Aqsa were futile and would fail in their goal of diminishing the role of the Palestinian people in resisting the Israeli occupation.
The Council of Endowments, Islamic Affairs, and Holy Places revealed earlier today that excavations made by "Israel" under Al-Aqsa Mosque were threatening its foundations, revealing that new cracks have appeared in the floor of the Holy Mosque.
The Council stated that the "Israel" Antiquities Authority and the "Elad" settlement association have been conducting suspicious and mysterious excavations in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque, especially from the southern and western sides adjacent to the mosque's external foundation, in the areas of Al-Buraq Wall and the Umayyad palaces.
Hamas called on the League of Arab States, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and Jordan to "move urgently to stop these malicious colonial schemes to protect Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque."
The Resistance faction also said the Israeli excavations in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque were a "direct threat to the foundations and walls of the mosque," in occupied Al-Quds.
